Country

What  great way to learn English. If you are into California, into cities and into Los Angles, then this  is a great summer English language camp to choose. Here you'll get to live on the the famous UCLA campus - a city in and of itself - have English lessons in the mornings and do fun stuff around the city in the mornings and evenings. The campus is an ideal place as a base for Los Angeles. It's safe, it's has amazing facilities and the school running the programme is one of the best independent schools in the USA. Having worked with them for 10 years or so, we love the quality and the great reviews of our clients.

English Courses

This programme is designed for adolescents, with lessons given by experienced, professional teachers who know how to engage younger learners (on holiday!). Topical lessons including grammar and pronunciation that include every day material from the city around them. There are 20 lessons per week (15 contact hours) and there'll also be preparation to make the most of the cultural excursions.
